(Communion - COMM53) Used CD $7.00 (Out-of-stock)

TFUL282’s final studio album from 2001 melds the ugly beauty of avant rock with peppy little nard-kicking melodies. Faux operettas suddenly transform into ground-to-a-halt shanties at the wrong speed; whale songs spontaneously corrupt themselves and become cries of harpooned whales; stockcar guitar riffs fishtail across bluegrass mirages; between debased jingles that have college radio station ID written all over them and chilly tinklers that could have been lifted directly from an hilarious new episode of Star Trek, backward Carnaby Street melodies battle like simultaneously occurring concept albums by the Swell Maps, Pere Ubu and… hell, name someone, Motörhead.
